What we know about AMD Ryzen

For complete information on the 2016 you can learn from AMD presentation. We also discuss some important points.

How many cores and threads in the new AMD Ryzen

While we are talking about three code names: SR3 - 4 cores, 8 threads; SR5 - 6 cores, 12 threads, SR7 - 8 cores, 16 threads. SR7 has a few modifications. We know that the nominal frequency of the processor SR7 is 3 or 3.2 GHz. This model was presented at the presentation assays. Were compared with the Intel Core i7 6900K, which also has 8 cores and 16 threads. In fact, they showed us the battle of top segment, which is of little interest to the bulk of PC users. It is worth noting that AMD Ryzen showed himself great in every respect, from games to work in heavy graphics packages. But it would be interesting to see tests SR3 and SR5. In any case, AMD showed a great processor, which is obviously better top-end FX series model.

AMD Ryzen Price

It is expected that AMD Ryzen price range will be concluded within the framework of 150-500 $. If their performance is comparable to competitors from Intel in the face of i3 and i5, then AMD will succeed.

AMD Ryzen Performance

The real productivity and especially productivity in the ruble spent while it is impossible to estimate. We have too little information. After all, we do not know what motherboard, power supply and cooling system, we have to buy to go to Ryzen. We look forward to the first quarter of 2017 and the details. From the presentation we can only conclude that the top processor AMD Ryzen SR7 3.2 GHz ahead of Intel Core i7 6900K in graphic packages, encoding, rendering. Performance in games at a decent level, but on the victory or defeat while it is impossible to say anything, because in the gameplay Battlefield 1 FPS counter and the operating frequency of the processor have not been shown.
